Jeremy Gibson – client story

Voiceover

Jeremy has done online courses and 1-2-1 work on voiceover and accents over the course of about 2 years. He’s also a member of the Voice & Accent Hub and an avid listener to the Voice Coach Podcast.

How did you feel before we started working together? Did you have any specific problems or issues? What were you struggling with? What worries did you have?

I had never worked 1 on 1 with a coach before and certainly had problems with confidence and a lack of awareness. I was also worried that I sounded dull and monotonous instead of expressive and interesting. I also feared the unknown, worrying I might be judged as not having the potential to grow into a voiceover artist.

How did you feel after the course was finished?

Whether it be an individual session or a group course, the feelings afterwards are always the same – excitement, relief, joy, positivity, self-confidence, and inspired to work on my own on whatever topic or item was covered.

Sometimes there were things I was doing that didn’t work or didn’t sound right for the part or accent, and the kind way I was directed to hear or feel what I was doing and then given techniques to change was gentle and always full of kindness.

What would you say to someone considering working with me?

If you’re considering a coach or course for voice, accents, voiceover performance, physical awareness, and more I would say to give Nic a call straight away. Squash any fears about contacting someone new, because Nic will make you feel like a good mate in no time at all. And in addition to the coaching and courses which are a great value, you get that augmented by multiple podcasts she hosts. I unashamedly recommend Nic to everyone I know.

What did you like best about the experience of working with me?

Some recommend working with a seasoned professional who is actively voicing in the market. Others recommend looking for someone you get along with so you look forward to the guidance. What I like most is that with Nic I got the absolute best of both!

I feel like I found a top-notch expert in her field who is also your best friend laughing at toddler farts and doing gymnastics with the tongue in front of a camera. I learn the best when I’m comfortable trying something new and not worry about how ridiculous I may sound or look, and this has been my experience working with Nic.

What specific result did you see as a result of us working together?

Very quickly I was able to identify some common patterns in scripts and recognise how to approach them. Items like lists (most often in threes), comparisons, and even making a pretty good guess after a single read-through on the tone of voice that fit the copy best. Working with Nic early in my training was like a jolt of energy to bolt me forward and keep me going.
